Cypermethrin Containing Insecticides
Pyrethrum is an insecticide found in nature and extracted from the petals of Chrysanthemum flower. Cypermethrin possesses the same properties of the natural pyrethrum from Chrysanthemum along with a much more durable effect, compared to the natural pyrethrum.
Demon WP (Cypermethrin 40%) and Cynoff WP (Cypermethrin 24.8%) are both effective insecticides against spiders, available in the form of loose powder that needs to be diluted in water to make a solution.
